What is PBI?
Polar Bears International (PBI) is the only organization dedicated solely to wild polar bears. Founded in 1992, PBI knows polar bears – their habits, their ecology, their threats – and are recognized leaders in their conservation. Climate change is effectively annihilating the habitat of polar bears, and PBI’s small team of passionate conservationists, scientists, and volunteers exists to help secure a future for polar bears across the Arctic. PBI’s work extends beyond the plight of polar bears; they are fighting to combat the belief that it’s too late and to unify the world into action.

Where does Canada Goose fit in?
Canada Goose is a company that’s intertwined with the iconic nature of the northern landscape. They believe they have a responsibility to help secure a future for polar bears across the Arctic.
That’s why they are a long-standing partner with PBI, the only organization dedicated solely to wild polar bears, and a passionate team whose mission is to conserve polar bears and the sea ice they depend on through media, science and advocacy.
How can I help?
International Polar Bear Day is February 27th; this is a global day of action for the bears.
One easy way to contribute is to take part in the Thermostat Challenge! It’s simple: just lower your thermostat on February 27th to reduce your carbon emissions and help polar bears. And then make every day a polar bear day by buying and installing a programmable thermostat or taking extra steps to reduce your energy consumption throughout the year.
“Using less energy produced by carbon-based fuels reduces our carbon emissions and can slow and even stop global warming, in turn saving our sea ice. Polar bears require sea ice for efficient hunting. Without sea ice, polar bears will decline in range and numbers, making them vulnerable to extinction in the future.” (Polar Bears International)
Another way to contribute? Purchase a jacket from the Canada Goose PBI collection!
The PBI Collection is a capsule of parkas, lightweight jackets and accessories for adults and kids, made in a signature colour – PBI Blue. This vibrant hue has become a symbol of the expert and important work being done by PBI scientists and conservationists to conserve polar bears and their habitats. Canada Goose donates $50 with each sale of a PBI jacket, which provides critical funding for polar bear and environmental research and advocacy.
